There are no standards specifying how you are to make a web page appear. You
leave that one up to common sense, and logic. Determine the function of your
site, and then find a form which fits the function in a fasionable way. You
get bonus points if that form / fashion involves a visual theme related to
the site's function.

But this isn't exactly the list to discuss this on. I don't think this is on
topic for any w3 list, actually. But that's okay. Random periodic
distractions are fun, and you can ignore them when you're too busy. :)

Well, okay, technically, there are accessibility guidelines, and there is a
seperate list for that, I think. However, I think that the web was founded
upon the principle that individuality is not a bad thing, and the specs are
designed to be as flexible as possible, enabling millions of different,
unique individuals, to express themselves on the Internet. This may not have
been the w3c's intent, but it is still the ideal that dominated the
pre-corporate Internet.
